Cookie Monster Has The Cookie Flu (#4045)

Cookie Monster enters his poem in the great cookie contest and wins! The prize is an enormous wagonload of cookies so, of course, Cookie can barely contain his excitement. He is about to dig into the cookie pile when he starts sneezing. Cookie Monster might have the Cookie Flu! Cookie shouts for a Monster Doctor who arrives immediately. The only way Cookie can cure his flu is if he can stop himself from thinking about cookies. Cookie Monster's friends feel very badly about his predicament and realize how horrible it must be for Cookie Monster not to be able to think about cookies. They try to help him get over the flu by distracting him and encouraging him to think about things other than cookies, but nothing works. Cookie Monster is thinking that he has the best friends in the world when he realizes he has stopped sneezing. He wasn't thinking about cookies. He was thinking about his friends! The flu is cured.
